Overview

In this elegiac and brutally honest debut work, a young artist, Rain Morton, attempts to make her mark in Manhattan's art world despite the weight of influence upon her: her art critic husband, her art dealer step-mother and her father, a renowned author. But just as Rain begins to make her own professional ascent, a string of setbacks and betrayals send her down a path of self-discovery--both personal and as a painter. On the way, she disentangles her intricate family history. At the fringes of Rain's tumult is the mysterious Colorman, James Morrow of Highland Morrow paint manufactory, whose ancient and arcane paint-making techniques--and hermetic existence--help Rain elucidate her increasingly confused world. Morrow slowly becomes an important ballast to her struggles. This is Ms Wood's debut novel.

    Pay off is worth it- even for a guy!

    I found that I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would. While it is the literary equivalent of a "chick flick"...I found the final payoff to make it worth my while (I'm a Man, and I read like a Man, meaning Nelson DeMille type stuff with a generous helping of Steven King and historical non-fiction). I think that I like the authors writing style more than the actual story...which I liked well enough to have reccommended this book to several women I know, which made me seem like a sensitive, spiritual type (which works for me). This writer is worth reading again, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see her get popular as she writes more books.

    The Colorman

    Rain is a painter who left the city to stay by the "paint factory" in her "hideaway" cabin to rediscover herself. Of course, there were many ups and downs after the turmoil of a bad marriage. She met, James Morrow, who made her think twice about everything in her life. This book showed me what real "colors" mean!
